hfmejias (618) - Dover, Delaware, USA - FEB 22, 2014
Bottle, Winter 2013... Poured dark, almost black in color, nice thick tan head. Aroma of bourbon, roasted malts and a bit of caramel. Taste is also mostly bourbon, with a strong presence of alcohol; there is also a bit of dark fruit, some malt sweetness and maybe even some chocolate. Very nice beer... Quite enjoyable.

7/20/13. Given to me by Dave (dbyron17) as a throw in for my first trade. Shared with Dan and Kevin on the street after my 1st Gluten free pizza. Not sure what was worst. All kidding aside. Had my first BCBS the other night and not sure if any BA beers will compare. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Elwood (2960) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - JUN 28, 2013
Serving: 750 ml. bottle from State Line Liquors. It pours a cloudy brown with a very thin tan head. The head fades almost instantly. The nose is boozy with heavy bourbon, oak, and caramel. The alcohol bangs you in the face on the first sip as well. There is a little raisin, chocolate, caramel, bourbon and oak. Medium body with a hot finish. The alcohol was just too overpowering in this brew. Even sitting on this bottle since it came out hasn’t smoothed it out any.

Bottle. Pours a deep dark brown with a creamy tan head. Rich aroma of chocolate, bourbon, vanilla and caramel. Flavor was creamy and rich with heavy bourbon, oaky vanilla, chocolate, dark fruit and a bit of caramel with a nice dry finish.

(750ml bottle #484/1400 thanks Josh!) clear deep brown, very few bubbles. Nose of alcohol, light chocolate, oak, not very complex, light caramel. Taste of alcohol, whiskey, oak, estery, light chocolate. Again, not very complex. Nothing really wrong with it either. Unique for sure.

750 ml bottle, can’t remember who shared it. Thanks! Bottle 388/1150. Pours a dark brown color with no head. Notes of bourbon, vanilla, coconut, oak, raisins, and caramel. Medium-bodied, with low carbonation and a smooth mouthfeel. If you like bourbon barrel ales, this will be your thing.
